This traditional, detached cottage with oak floors, vaulted ceilings and original beams, makes the perfect Lake District escape for exciting days out and cosy nights in by the fire.
The living room, dining room and kitchen in this delightful restored cottage has been opened up to create one communal space. At the heart of the house is a large multi-fuel burner which makes a great focal point for spending time with your friends and family. The high vaulted ceilings, with exposed original beams, make a light and airy space from which to enjoy the stunning scenery of the Lake District National Park which can be enjoyed from the windows on all three sides. The enclosed garden at the rear is a great place for children to play as well as somewhere to sit out and relax in the afternoon sun and enjoy the spectacular views across the valley, to the imposing sight of Blencathra. There is storage available for up to four bikes and there are plenty of cycle routes both on and off road within easy reach. For keen walkers, the location is perfect, the property is located just 4 miles from Thirlmere reservoir which is at the base of England’s third highest mountain, Helvellyn, so you won’t have to go far to find your next big adventure.
This beautiful cottage has two bedrooms and offers a great level of comfort and will certainly appeal to couples and families. Whilst comfortably sleeping four, this property also has a sofa bed in the living area which can convert into a third double bed (bedding available on request) and would therefore suit larger families of five and six.
Tastefully decorated with some lovely original features, Katellen Cottage provides a welcoming Lake District base to explore your surroundings. The property is situated just 1¼ miles from two village pubs or 1 mile on foot, and only 100 yards from the Threlkeld Quarry and Mining Museum which is great for a fun day out, with a narrow gauge train ride, mining tour and activities including digging and panning for gold. For golfers, you will find Keswick Golf Club just 1½ miles away or head towards Keswick and you will reach Castlerigg Stone Circle which is an interesting short walk suitable for all ages. The popular market town of Keswick with its abundance of bars, shopping experiences, restaurants and tourist attractions including The Derwent Pencil Museum, The Theatre by the Lake and Puzzling Place, which has a selection of mind boggling optical illusions, is just 5 miles away.
Katellen Cottage will prove to be a winner with couples and families looking for a memorable stay in the picturesque Lake District. Shop 4 miles, pub and restaurant 1¼ miles.

About the local area

Threlkeld and St. Johns in the Vale are just to the east of Keswick in the Northern Lakes. The steep sided Blencathra looms over Threlkeld village, a popular starting point for walking the mountain; three ridges lead to the summit from the village. St. Johns in the Vale, as the name suggests is set in a peaceful valley surrounded by some of England's highest mountains.

Threlkeld's history reaches back more than 800 years; the Romans were here from the 3rd to the 8th century, followed later by the Norse. In the village the church dates back to 1578 and there are two pubs that first opened their doors in 1688.

St. Johns in the Vale is in one of the most stunning valleys in the Northern Lake District. Though only a few miles outside Keswick, the area is tranquil and unspoilt with great views of Blencathra and the Helvellyn range.

There are many places of interest within easy reach; beautiful Ullswater to the east, the lively market town of Keswick and Derwentwater to the West and Thirlmere to the south, with forest walks and fishing.
